|Walkthrough & Notes|
'You will always have my respect for what you did before the Doors of Durin, avenging my poor son with your excellent weapon, but I must be honest with you: I believe you are wasting your time. As long as you will be traipsing around in the dark looking for this flight-of-fancy forge, you might as well accomplish something worthwhile, <name>.
'There seems to be a large goblin presence among the Silvertine Lodes, far to the south and below the Great Delving. As long as you are searching for this fabled Heart of Fire, you may as well slay goblins while you do it -- especially the ones that have moved into Gamil Filik, the Elder-mine. The goblins are many, and bringing an ally or two might be a good idea.
'In fact, why not steal some of their maps? They have long lived here in the darkness, and their crude maps may show the way to this mythical forge of yours, as well as being useful to those of us seeking paths that actually exist.'
Brogur is skeptical that the Heart of Fire even exists, and wants you to at least do something about the goblin problem while you search for it.
Goblins can be found among the Silvertine Lodes, south and below the Great Delving, and their maps can be found within Gamil Filik, the mine they have occupied.
Brogur asked you to slay goblins while you seek the Heart of Fire, and to keep an eye out for their maps; it is possible they discovered the forge and included it on their crude maps.
Brogur is in the Chamber of Command, up the eastern stairs in the Chamber of the Crossroads, located at the southern entrance to Durin's Way, north of the Great Delving.
You have slain many goblins and collected their maps while searching for the Heart of Fire.
Bósi is in the Chamber of the Crossroads, just outside the Chamber of Command.
Brogur has not seen anything of use on the crude goblin-maps you found, but his cousin Bósi may have better fortune interpreting them.
